The Competition
Each participant gets only 5-10 minutes (depending on entries). The
person who makes the best case wins! They can do whatever they want--
just as long as each presentation is about some programming language
other than Python and make at least one comparison to Python during
the talk.

Sign up:
See who is in the running:

There will be a cash prize for the best presentation (not the best
language, we already know that winner) given of $200. Plus you will be
considered really cool for awhile and your friends will be highly
